Understand the Basics of ADA Claims

In order to file an ADA lawsuit, a person must be able to prove that he or she has a disability, which could include having a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. A person who does not meet the definition of a qualified individual with a disability cannot bring an ADA claim.

What You Can Do To Avoid Being Sued By An ADA Plaintiff.

If you own a business, you need to make sure that you are aware of what you must do to avoid being sued by an ADA plaintiff. This includes making sure that you have accessible parking spaces, restrooms, and other facilities, as well as providing adequate signage and other visual aids.

You need to know what the law requires.

If you think you might be facing an ADA lawsuit, contact us immediately. We will help you understand the requirements of the law and how to avoid being sued.

In 2014, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Walgreens, alleging that the company failed to comply with the ADA by failing to accommodate a customer who used a wheelchair. The DOJ claimed that the pharmacy chain did not allow the customer to use a self-service kiosk to purchase his prescription medication.

In addition to requiring businesses to comply with the ADA, the Department of Justice has issued guidance to help businesses understand their obligations under the act. For example, if a business provides services to the general public, such as restaurants, hotels, retail stores, banks, and other establishments, then it must be accessible to people with disabilities. Especially If a business receives federal funding, then it must follow the guidelines set forth by the Department of Justice.
